I'm down with Damian N on this one. I LOVE J-Hill as a player and a Laker, but if we Lakers could get Derrick Williams, he could really thrive in MDA's offense at SF. Dude can play and shoot the rock
Again... Jordan Hill is worth much more than Williams. Minnesota hates Williams. They've been trying to trade him forever. Hell they just went out and got Muhammad because they don't like or believe in Williams.
All the more reason to think Williams is attainable via trade with Muhammed AND Buddinger on their roster. Look, Williams may not be a Lakers savior, but he could certainly do with a change of scenery away from the Wolves. He's young, has size and great athleticism, can play SF effectively (as well as PF), can shoot and score in general, can shoot the 3-ball AND still has upside IMHO. What's not to like??
Give him a shot in a situation where he can develop without as much expectation. If not Hill, why not Blake (or Meeks for that matter) now that Farmar is on-board? Bottom line is, who plays SF for the Lakers rigth at this moment.....???
